Greenbush Cemetery Tombstone Photo Gallery

====Echoes==from=the=past===

         Greenbush cemetery is a an old cemetery still in use today.  Many of the older tombstones are in need of some loving care.  They are getting rather weather beaten and unreadable by other elements.  Some of them are buried in the cemetery or not there altogether.   Kate and I have dug up tombstones to take a few better photos when doing it for others and sometimes try when I have her with me, when I'm out and about so don't have to make a return trip to do this.  I'm not physically strong enough to do it myself although I have tried. Then end up down for a few days so have to wait for Kate.   There are many Simmons buried here in this cemetery, along with many other of the first settlers in this area. The photos are all names for the people they represent but may not get the names put here until  later but wanted to get these online as I do have them and more will be coming.  It's a pretty cemetery that sits on a hill, west of Greenbush off Hwy #116 that goes into Greenbush.  Am trying like heck to figure out a way to put a map with all the cemeteries online but haven't figured that one out yet if you need one and will be in the area feel free to email me. Here are 212 tombstone photos to enjoy.  Pico search engine will pick up the photograph surnames.  Thanks & Enjoy!!!!

If you would care to have someone put out flowers or some kind of decorations on your loved ones grave email me for more information. Costs of flowers, etc. will be the responsibility of the person requesting this service. Thanks.

If you find or take any photos on this page, to help fray with costs and for more pages like this to appear you may send a donation to:

Foxie Hagerty
RR #2 Box 63
1635 Sherwood Road
Dahinda, IL 61428

This is because the price of gasoline is skyrocketing.

Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
